Lab Theater will host a “Read for Peace” event Monday, November 5, to encourage peace, hope and healing after last week’s mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
The 7 p.m. event will feature local religious leaders, Holocaust survivors and others reading excerpts from poems, psalms and other works. Donations will be collected for the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
“Jewish, Christian, Muslim, eastern faiths and spiritualists will share the stage and join with members of the community wanting to embrace peace and work together to find ways of achieving a better life for all,” Lab Theater board member Ella Nayor said in a news release announcing the event. “Love is our only answer to blotting out the dark blots of hatred. It is only through education and connection that we shall overcome.” The event is free and open to the public. The Laboratory Theater of Florida is located at 1634 Woodford Ave., downtown Fort Myers.
